    I would like to get a thermometer to check the baby's temperature and I read that you shouln't take the temp from the head as it's usually cooler than the body temp.

    I've seen some that you put under the baby's arm and some that you put in the baby's ear, I just wondered how anyone else got on with the different types?

    Any advice very welcome

    I haven't got my baby yet, but have bought a braun thermoscan IRT 4520 (ear thermometer). I have read that it's from the ear that you get the closest treading to the body temperature.

    have used on me and hubby and it's really easy to use. It's expensive but I bought it half price brand new from ebay :)
    otherwise, it's £40!!!!! too much for me!

    sorry can't really help you, and from your ticker, you will probably have you little one before me!

    hope someone will be of more help!
